Support the Planetarium

All proceeds from this event will support our Planetarium campaign.

Ticket sales are 100% tax deductible.

At Chabot, the Digital Sky Planetarium Projection system creates the celestial magic in our Planetarium. Unfortunately, this dated system has begun to fail regularly, causing cancelled shows and disappointment for students and visitors alike.

To reinvigorate the Planetarium and its ability to inspire and educate, we are seeking one-time funding of $89,000. This enables Chabot to replace and upgrade the Digital Sky servers, service and overhaul the seven full dome projectors, and repair and replace the projector’s bulbs, opening the doors for more memories, stories, and learning opportunities across our Universe – all from the hills of Oakland.
